Hi , I am founder of B2B marketplace . I am in early stage , looking to add sellers in my website. How to convince them to sell in startup ? Can I provide as a free service for particular months? What will they expect from me? Any ideas and instructions?
Just brainstorming - I would speak to smaller advertising agencies both traditional and digital and offer them a nice commission to push ads to their client base.
They would expect data proving out the number of impressions/view those outdoor ad spaces will garner and pricing that aligns to the going market rate.
I help a lot of people with go to market strategy and initial revenue generation. Please let me know if you want to do a call to go deeper here and discuss other ideas.
You need to show potential ROI or they will never buy in. I worked for a short time in developing ad sales for Zillow and were doing multi million dollar days in ad revenue.
What do you have that will bring potential new customers to your advertisers? Are you helping them reach an existing or new target market? What makes you different from the marketplaces that currently have their ad dollars?
I would love to get on a call and explore ideas within your concept.
